I haven't been very active on here because I've been SLAVING away on this costume. This is my first post for the play I'm producing and designing; 'Between Night and Day'. It was written by an English lit graduate student at Concordia University here, in Montreal. With this play, my friend Michael Belcher brings us back to post-WWII Hollywood. Within the first minute of this play we are thrown back in this world where we meet wonderful and complex characters.. It is my job to make this play look good. This makes me nervous. Nevertheless, I'm confident it'll look and be great in the end! :)
Here are the first few pictures of the first dress I've been sewing. This one is for a lively character named Evelyn. This woman is an actress and is best friend to the main character, Rose. Because our budget is practically non-existant, all female characters in this play are getting one dress and are being accessorized with inexpensive cardigans and jewelry to change up the outfits from scene to scene.
Let me know what you guys think!
Oh and I've been using Butterick pattern B5281 from my Etsy shop!
